Australia. More about the weather where you are on-line. That's

:00:00.:00:09.

Good evening, and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:10.:00:13.

The headlines tonight: The rising cost of stand`in consultants as our

:00:14.:00:15.

hospitals battle to fill senior medical jobs.

:00:16.:00:21.

I would have to really consider it in terms of hours. I do want to have

:00:22.:00:26.

a family at some point in the future and I do not know if it would fit in

:00:27.:00:30.

with my plans for that. The Lincolnshire teacher

:00:31.:00:32.

hospitalised after her car was crushed by an African elephant.

:00:33.:00:36.

The Lincolnshire footballer who believes he's the only openly gay

:00:37.:00:43.

player in the English game. The quality should be here for

:00:44.:00:50.

everybody. Like racism, we have got over that, it should be the same

:00:51.:00:54.

with homosexuality. Move over, Sydney ` why tourism

:00:55.:00:58.

bosses want the Humber Bridge to be the latest major visitor attraction.

:00:59.:01:01.

Milder air around rain on the way tonight, that five`day forecast

:01:02.:01:09.

follows shortly `` Mulder air and rain on the way.

:01:10.:01:16.

Hospitals in our area are still having problems recruiting full`time

:01:17.:01:18.

doctors to work in accident and emergency departments. New figures

:01:19.:01:21.

obtained by the Labour Party show that spending on temporary staff in

:01:22.:01:24.

hospitals across northern Lincolnshire and Goole has increased

:01:25.:01:32.

by 25% to more than ?900,000 a year. Our health correspondent, Vicky

:01:33.:01:39.

Johnson reports. This is the front line of emergency

:01:40.:01:43.

care. But many of our A simply couldn't function without locums `

:01:44.:01:45.

they're temporary or freelance doctors who fill gaps in the rota.

:01:46.:01:58.

It is because fewer graduates opting to specialise in emergency medicine.

:01:59.:02:02.

Ruth brand is a fourth`year medical student. She admits that while she

:02:03.:02:06.

enjoys the buzz of the department long nights and weekend working put

:02:07.:02:12.

her off. I would have to really consider it. I want to have a family

:02:13.:02:18.

at some point in the future and I do not know if that would fit in. In

:02:19.:02:27.

the year 2009`2010 ?737,000 was spent on local doctors. I last year

:02:28.:02:34.

that figure had risen to 920,000. That is a rise of around 25%. With

:02:35.:02:45.

six out of ten A consultant posts still not filled, that is likely to

:02:46.:02:52.

continue to rise. Today the opposition blamed the government.

:02:53.:02:55.

The first warning signs were three years ago. No, the problem was a

:02:56.:03:02.

historic one. This has the building for the last decade. When my

:03:03.:03:08.

honourable friend was Secretary of State he failed to make those

:03:09.:03:13.

long`term workforce decisions. Increasing pay and changing hours is

:03:14.:03:21.

not the only answer, I am told. I am not doing it because it pays well, I

:03:22.:03:25.

am doing it because I want to do right by the people of this country.

:03:26.:03:32.

Pay does not attract me. However they decide to tackle the problem of

:03:33.:03:35.

getting more doctors to work permanently and A, one thing is

:03:36.:03:40.

certain, that it will not be a quick fix.

:03:41.:03:46.

What can the NHS do to get more full`time doctors into A? We

:03:47.:03:52.

search shows that around half of training posts current legal

:03:53.:03:59.

unfilled. To try to entice more young doctors to go into A they

:04:00.:04:04.

are going to do this by introducing more flexible working, by cutting

:04:05.:04:09.

hours, increasing the holiday pay and by introducing more training. As

:04:10.:04:15.

the young undergraduate told us, something must be done to encourage

:04:16.:04:22.

a better worklife balance. `` work`life balance. It takes six

:04:23.:04:27.

years to train somebody to work in emergency medicine, sword looks like

:04:28.:04:31.

our hospitals are going to face a further drain on their budgets as

:04:32.:04:37.

they continue to use hospital will comes `` so it looks like. We want

:04:38.:04:41.

to hear from you on this story. Do you think it matters whether doctors

:04:42.:04:44.

are temporary? Maybe you think more needs to be done to make it more

:04:45.:04:48.

attractive to work in A? You can get in touch on e`mail or

:04:49.:04:51.

text. In a moment: The council without

:04:52.:05:04.

enough councillors ` why no decisions can be made in the

:05:05.:05:07.

Lincolnshire town that's been left underrepresented.

:05:08.:05:12.

A teacher from Lincolnshire has had a lucky escape after an elephant

:05:13.:05:15.

attacked the car she was in while on safari in Africa. It rolled the car

:05:16.:05:19.

several times, piercing her thigh with its tusk. And it was all caught

:05:20.:05:29.

on camera. Caroline Bilton reports. Getting up close and personal with

:05:30.:05:33.

the wildlife in South Africa, but within moments this

:05:34.:05:34.

once`in`a`lifetime experience turned horribly wrong. And it was all

:05:35.:05:42.

caught on camera by tourists in a car just 100 feet away. You see the

:05:43.:05:46.

elephant turn and then roll the car over and over again. Inside, a

:05:47.:05:51.

teacher from Lincolnshire, Sarah Brooks, and her partner. Both no

:05:52.:05:58.

doubt fearing for their lives. This is where the attack took place ` the

:05:59.:06:01.

Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa and

:06:02.:06:05.

a popular destination with tourists. For this couple, it was a holiday

:06:06.:06:09.

they were lucky to survive ` Miss Brooks was stabbed in her thigh by

:06:10.:06:13.

one of the elephant's tusks after it penetrated the car. Her partner

:06:14.:06:17.

suffered less serious injuries. At the school where Sarah Brooks worked

:06:18.:06:22.

in Spalding, a sense of shock. They say they wish her a full and speedy

:06:23.:06:28.

recovery. The general manager at the Kruger National Park says the

:06:29.:06:30.

elephant had to be killed because they could not understand its

:06:31.:06:34.

behaviour. They later discovered it had been experiencing a condition

:06:35.:06:36.

where testosterone levels rise, causing male elephants to become

:06:37.:06:41.

more aggressive. For this couple, this was a close encounter that

:06:42.:06:44.

perhaps was a little too close. Caroline Bilton, BBC Look North.

:06:45.:06:57.

Witnesses have described in court today how they saw an East Yorkshire

:06:58.:07:00.

woman hysterical, upset and not knowing what she was doing after a

:07:01.:07:04.

fatal car collision with her sister. Rosie Ann Stone denies causing the

:07:05.:07:07.

death of her sister Jennie last February when their cars collided on

:07:08.:07:11.

the A165 near Fraisthorpe. Simon Spark has been in court today.

:07:12.:07:23.

Simon, what have you heard? Peter, we've heard numerous accounts mainly

:07:24.:07:26.

from witnesses who were in the queue of traffic that followed a flatbed

:07:27.:07:29.

lorry at 40mph on the A165 Fraisthorpe Straight. From what

:07:30.:07:32.

we've heard today, Rosie Ann was behind the lorry and over took it,

:07:33.:07:36.

but at the same time Jennie Stone, her sister, was overtaking from

:07:37.:07:39.

further back along that queue of traffic. They collided, Jennie

:07:40.:07:42.

seemed to lose control and ran into a tree. The question here was

:07:43.:07:45.

whether Rosie Ann was careless in her manoeuvre and whether that

:07:46.:07:49.

caused the death of her Sister. Today we heard from the lorry

:07:50.:07:53.

driver, from a van driver and from a driver that witnessed them three

:07:54.:07:55.

abreast coming from the other direction, a key piece of evidence

:07:56.:07:59.

came from Sarah Jane Williams, who was directly behind Rosie as she

:08:00.:08:05.

pulled out in her car. She saw her indicate and checked her own mirror

:08:06.:08:09.

to do the same, she said it was clear but she double`checked and saw

:08:10.:08:17.

Jennie's blue car coming at speed. She later described how upset Rosie

:08:18.:08:19.

Ann was, shouting, "Jennie, what have you done it for, I didn't see

:08:20.:08:25.

you, what have you done it for?" But the police's view from, senior

:08:26.:08:28.

investigating officer John Rusted, was that Jennie was in the process

:08:29.:08:31.

of overtaking and prior to that Rosie Ann had the opportunity to

:08:32.:08:34.

observe her overtaking in her rear`view mirror. The case continues

:08:35.:08:44.

tomorrow. An inquest into the death of a Red

:08:45.:08:48.

Arrows pilot has heard that the number of engineers on the team has

:08:49.:08:51.

increased since the accident. Sean Cunningham died when his ejection

:08:52.:08:55.

seat went off while his plane was on the ground at RAF Scampton two years

:08:56.:08:58.

ago. The coroner heard this morning that a senior engineer has been

:08:59.:09:01.

employed and is currently being trained.

:09:02.:09:07.

Police have been granted more time to question a man who was arrested

:09:08.:09:11.

after a person was found dead in Louth. Richard Samuel Woods, who was

:09:12.:09:15.

32, was found at a house on Spring Terrace in the early hours of

:09:16.:09:18.

Sunday. The 23`year`old man was arrested at the scene.

:09:19.:09:24.

Still ahead tonight: The Lincolnshire footballer who believes

:09:25.:09:27.

he's the only openly gay player in the English game.

:09:28.:09:33.

And forget Sydney or the Golden Gate ` why the Humber Bridge could be the

:09:34.:09:49.

next big tourist attraction. Don't forget to keep your

:09:50.:09:52.

photographs coming in. If you have one that you're proud of send it in

:09:53.:09:55.

by e`mail or hard copy. John says, it has been dull, can you

:09:56.:10:19.

ask what happened to the winter sunshine?

:10:20.:10:27.

It is always dull in Willoughby! Does that mean that you got it

:10:28.:10:32.

wrong? Moving on... It was nice in Lincolnshire.

:10:33.:10:37.

The headline for the next 24 hours is quite a cloudy one, especially in

:10:38.:10:44.

Willoughby frigate will be some patchy rain at first and then again

:10:45.:10:49.

later `` where there will be some patchy rain. This weather front will

:10:50.:10:56.

bring more patchy rain and from the south`west later tomorrow and into

:10:57.:11:00.

tomorrow it will be mostly dry. It will be a generally bright day apart

:11:01.:11:05.

from some stubborn cloud persisting across certain parts. That will come

:11:06.:11:12.

across as in the next few hours, just a touch of ground frost right

:11:13.:11:15.

now but temperatures are on the rise with some cloud and rain and drizzle

:11:16.:11:20.

spreading eastwards. There will be some misty nets over the tops of the

:11:21.:11:28.

walls. By dawn tomorrow morning it will be new verse six or seven

:11:29.:11:36.

Celsius. The sun will rise in the morning at around ten past eight. A

:11:37.:11:43.

grade, dull start with outbreaks of patchy rain. `` a great, dull start.

:11:44.:11:55.

Patchy rain will threaten once more from the south`west. The most

:11:56.:11:59.

notable feature from tomorrow will be the temperatures. A mild feel

:12:00.:12:06.

tomorrow afternoon, generally figures reaching ten or even 11

:12:07.:12:11.

Celsius. A bit of patchy rain on Wednesday night, a dull start on

:12:12.:12:18.

Friday, otherwise dry and bright. Saturday looks quite damp with

:12:19.:12:32.

further rain or drizzle at times. One plane today had a vapour trail

:12:33.:12:39.

and wondered not. Can you ask Paul by?

:12:40.:12:43.

I have no idea. Koch you on the hop there. `` court

:12:44.:12:48.

to you. See you tomorrow. He plays in front of hundreds of

:12:49.:13:00.

people every week, and one Lincolnshire footballer says he

:13:01.:13:03.

believes he's the only openly gay player in the professional or

:13:04.:13:05.

semi`professional game. Liam Davis was speaking days after the former

:13:06.:13:08.

Premier League midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger came out. The

:13:09.:13:10.

23`year`old Gainsborough Trinity player says he hopes there will be

:13:11.:13:13.

many more openly gay footballers in the game by the time he finishes his

:13:14.:13:17.

career. He spoke to our sports reporter Simon Clark.

:13:18.:13:20.

It has been quite a week in the life of cafe owner and semiprofessional

:13:21.:13:26.

footballer Liam Davis. He decided to make his homosexuality public even

:13:27.:13:28.

though family and most team`mates already knew. The reaction, he says,

:13:29.:13:35.

has been astonishing. The amount of stuff that has come out from it,

:13:36.:13:40.

support on Twitter and Facebook, as you would expect, social media in

:13:41.:13:43.

this day and age, has been fantastic. The number of people that

:13:44.:13:47.

have been contacting me for articles, TV things, it has been a

:13:48.:13:53.

lot more than I expected. Only last week Thomas Hitzlsperger

:13:54.:14:05.

revealed that he was gay, hopefully encouraging others to come out.

:14:06.:14:10.

Hopefully it will encourage others because they will see that they can

:14:11.:14:13.

still be professional football players, play at the highest level,

:14:14.:14:18.

and still be gay. It is not a contradiction, as I proved. The lads

:14:19.:14:26.

have been relaxed about it. We cannot treat it as something

:14:27.:14:36.

different because it is just Liam. As long as he performs well on

:14:37.:14:41.

Saturday that is all we kill about. `` all we care about. Liam hopes

:14:42.:14:56.

that coming out could help others to deal with their sexuality and sport.

:14:57.:15:02.

It comes out another sports but football seems to be a still a bit

:15:03.:15:10.

worried about it. We still need more action from the FA and putting money

:15:11.:15:13.

into things like campaigns and poster campaigns to say that it is

:15:14.:15:20.

okayed to be gay in football. Tonight the FA have told us that

:15:21.:15:25.

those who discriminate against Lyon and other gay players will face the

:15:26.:15:35.

appropriate sanctions. `` discriminate against Liam.

:15:36.:15:39.

Simon mentioned Justin Fashanu in his report there, so far the only

:15:40.:15:42.

gay professional football player to come out while still playing. Sadly

:15:43.:15:46.

he committed suicide in 1998. I can speak to his niece, Amal. Good

:15:47.:15:56.

evening. We have 5000 professional footballers, why do think that none

:15:57.:16:01.

of them have owned up to being gay? I suppose it is something pretty

:16:02.:16:06.

scary and I do not think that the environment is designed or set or

:16:07.:16:09.

has been in the past four footballer to decide to want to come out. I

:16:10.:16:17.

think that after Justin Fashanu and the example that he set, it showed

:16:18.:16:24.

that there was fear and that if you do commit something bad will happen

:16:25.:16:28.

to you. It is all revolving around negativity and if you do come, what

:16:29.:16:32.

will happen and, like Justin Fashanu, but nowadays things are

:16:33.:16:38.

changing. This is the proof that things are changing. Do you think

:16:39.:16:45.

that your uncle would think that enough progress has been made? It

:16:46.:16:51.

does not look like it. It is kind of sad because footballers are advised

:16:52.:16:54.

by other people like managers and agents. I think that the way that

:16:55.:16:59.

they are managed as along the lines of, do not come out, if you do then

:17:00.:17:04.

it will not be good for you. The outcome will not be positive, but

:17:05.:17:08.

really it is and you should always find the time to be true to who you

:17:09.:17:11.

are because otherwise you have other types of problems like depression or

:17:12.:17:14.

other things are having to commit suicide. So you think that these

:17:15.:17:23.

taunts and abuse that people are worried about, that it would not

:17:24.:17:29.

happen? We are in 2014, like me there are many other individuals who

:17:30.:17:32.

share their mentality that if a footballer came out regardless of

:17:33.:17:36.

whether he was playing retired nobody really cares any more. In

:17:37.:17:40.

order to make it so that nobody should care, then you have to come

:17:41.:17:45.

out and be who you are, why pretend? Why do normal street food follows

:17:46.:17:49.

not want to talk about the subject `` normal straight footballers? You

:17:50.:18:02.

must be delighted and proud that Liam has come out to talk about it.

:18:03.:18:09.

I am, I detained him amazing. Who cares? It is none of my business who

:18:10.:18:13.

you go to bed with that night. If you are a good player then that is

:18:14.:18:21.

lime and trusted on. It is great for him to be who he is. Do you think

:18:22.:18:29.

that stories like Liam's will encourage more people come out? Do

:18:30.:18:33.

you think that football needs to do more to tackle homophobia? Just a

:18:34.:18:37.

reminder, here is the e`mail address... Officials from Hull City

:18:38.:18:46.

Council will find out what they need to do to provide a permanent home

:18:47.:18:50.

for the aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious when it is

:18:51.:18:52.

decommissioned next year. Business leaders in the city would

:18:53.:18:55.

like to use the ship as a floating tourist attraction on the Humber.

:18:56.:18:59.

They'll now get the chance to view the vessel and learn more about the

:19:00.:19:09.

bidding process. A man has appeared via videolink at

:19:10.:19:12.

Newcastle Crown Court after a fire on a ferry just off the Bridlington

:19:13.:19:16.

coast last month. Six people had to be winched off the DFDS ship and

:19:17.:19:19.

were airlifted to hospital. Boden George Hughes is charged with arson

:19:20.:19:22.

reckless to endangering life, and affray. He's due to go on trial in

:19:23.:19:29.

June. We asked for your response to the

:19:30.:19:32.

news that fracking could be carried out in Lincolnshire. French oil

:19:33.:19:35.

company Total is investing ?28 million in test drilling for shale

:19:36.:19:47.

gas near Gainsborough. There was a very big response on this story,

:19:48.:19:51.

thank you very much indeed. Jenny in Hornsea said, "I'm really

:19:52.:19:54.

against it because obviously there are grounds for having it banned in

:19:55.:19:58.

France and other European countries. I think we need to look into why it

:19:59.:20:02.

has been banned in other countries, look at the scientific evidence and

:20:03.:20:05.

the debate behind it before any decisions are made." Bill

:20:06.:20:32.

they are supposed to be the backbone of local Chrissy, town and parish

:20:33.:20:42.

councils look after a range of 80s. `` of local communities.

:20:43.:20:51.

According to the locals, all is not as it should be in this small

:20:52.:20:54.

Lincolnshire market town. They say it's a bit shabby and rundown, as

:20:55.:21:02.

Mike Chiappini explains. This is another concern I have about the

:21:03.:21:05.

parish council not maintaining things around the town. This is a

:21:06.:21:09.

nice sign which welcomes people to Wainfleet as you come in on this

:21:10.:21:13.

direction. It has been missing from this poll for released 12 months.

:21:14.:21:19.

Here you can see a pile of rubbish inside the cemetery which would

:21:20.:21:22.

normally be inside a very large wheelie bin but for some reason that

:21:23.:21:26.

has disappeared. This is another item which I think that the town

:21:27.:21:31.

council should be attending to. It was only put up last year.

:21:32.:21:34.

The problem is that Wainfleet Town Council currently has just three

:21:35.:21:38.

members and cannot make any legal decisions or sanction any changes

:21:39.:21:40.

because the council needs at least four members to have a quorum. They

:21:41.:21:47.

are in a Catch`22, I appreciate that, but they should have seen this

:21:48.:21:51.

coming, I think, in my opinion, should have seen what is happening

:21:52.:21:54.

and done something about it before now. But the council claims it is

:21:55.:21:58.

trying to do something about the situation and says it knows people

:21:59.:22:01.

interested in joining but is unsure how to bring them in. Whilst we know

:22:02.:22:08.

that we can advertise we are not sure whether we can legally co`opt

:22:09.:22:12.

them. That is something that we are asking, can we advertise, but can we

:22:13.:22:22.

also adopt those prospective councillors, or is that something

:22:23.:22:26.

that only you can do. East Lindsey District Council says it is aware of

:22:27.:22:29.

the current arrangement and is waiting to be officially contacted

:22:30.:22:33.

by the parish clerk. It says it has powers to help the town council to

:22:34.:22:36.

appoint new members and set the council tax precept. For the time

:22:37.:22:40.

being, the town council says it accepts residents concerns and is

:22:41.:22:43.

keen to restore a full council as soon as possible. Amy Cole, BBC Look

:22:44.:22:49.

North. The Hull City owner says he'll leave

:22:50.:22:53.

the club if plans to change the name aren't approved. Owner Assem Allam

:22:54.:22:56.

said there was no doubt he would leave if the Football Association

:22:57.:22:59.

don't approve his proposed name change to Hull Tigers. Meanwhile

:23:00.:23:04.

Allam confirmed that a deal to sign Nikica Jelevic will be finalised.

:23:05.:23:11.

Meanwhile Assem Allam says the club's record deal to sign Nikica

:23:12.:23:14.

Jelevic will be concluded today and they've agreed terms for West Brom's

:23:15.:23:18.

Shane Long. Scunthorpe United have made their sixth permanent signing

:23:19.:23:21.

in the January transfer window. Former Coventry and Birmingham

:23:22.:23:23.

attacker Gary McSheffrey has been signed until the end of the season,

:23:24.:23:27.

following his hit hat`trick for the reserve team last week.

:23:28.:23:44.

There are plans to make the attempt to `` to make the Humber Bridge into

:23:45.:23:49.

a full`blown tourist at action. `` to rest attraction.

:23:50.:24:03.

It's not just about getting from one side of the Humber to the other,

:24:04.:24:07.

people as well as cars like to cross it ` and many had plenty of ideas on

:24:08.:24:17.

how to improve the experience. I enjoy the exercise and I walk it

:24:18.:24:21.

several times a week. I would like to see cyclists separated from

:24:22.:24:28.

walkers. A bit more for kids would be good. A bit of Angie jumping if

:24:29.:24:36.

you are extreme! A nice cafe and somewhere to sit, if you have been

:24:37.:24:39.

for a walk around then you will be a bit tired. You can climb Sydney

:24:40.:24:44.

Harbour Bridge in Australia and its visitor centre has its own cinema.

:24:45.:24:48.

The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco attracts ten million

:24:49.:24:50.

people a year with its Pavilion, charting its history and selling

:24:51.:24:53.

merchandise. And closer to home the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol

:24:54.:24:59.

offers free tours. I am very pleased to have been invited to open the

:25:00.:25:02.

Humber Bridge today. But the Humber Bridge hasn't changed since it

:25:03.:25:05.

opened more than 30 years ago, and councillors want to change that,

:25:06.:25:11.

with a huge visitor centre. We have got an iconic structure called the

:25:12.:25:16.

Humber Bridge. What we need to do as a community and take advantage of

:25:17.:25:19.

the whole City of Culture 2017 is to make that not just an iconic site

:25:20.:25:24.

but also a site which will create jobs and create a former interesting

:25:25.:25:28.

tourist centre for people coming into the region. Events do currently

:25:29.:25:31.

take place to attract more people, like the monthly farmers' market, a

:25:32.:25:34.

huge party also took place to celebrate its 25th birthday and

:25:35.:25:37.

there were once plans to illuminate it at night. 56,000 people already

:25:38.:25:41.

come here, but it's hoped even more will come and perhaps take a selfie.

:25:42.:25:55.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

:25:56.:26:04.

Coronation Street actor goes trial, he is accused of rape and indecent

:26:05.:26:13.

assault. And the NHS is struggling to fill

:26:14.:26:23.

senior consultant post is. We were talking about stand and

:26:24.:26:26.

doctors at the start of the programme. One viewer says, if I was

:26:27.:26:32.

a lawsuit usefully injured I would not care if the doctor was a

:26:33.:26:36.

temporary doctor or not, a doctor is a doctor regardless. One viewer says

:26:37.:26:43.

that people should not going to medicine if they do not want to work

:26:44.:26:49.

weekends. Brian says, if people stopped paying locums extortionate

:26:50.:26:58.

amounts then sends would prevail. And another, A has never been an

:26:59.:27:04.

area that is popular with doctors, this would need looking into first.

:27:05.:27:09.

And also we had that very moving film, we were talking to Amal

:27:10.:27:19.

Fashanu fear, and we have been talking about Liam Davis. Great to

:27:20.:27:29.

see a local footballer brave enough to be himself. Best wishes to him.

:27:30.:27:33.

That comes from John. I am sure that we as watching. Thank you for

:27:34.:27:45.
